Why does Sunday always have to be ruined by adulting?
I got out for a 3.5km walk with Brenda this morning and it was nice to get caught up. I couldn’t believe we didn’t get rained on!
This evening my luck held and I had a dry 4.5km run. Not my best run, but not my worst either.
I’ve also gotten 100 squats, 100 crunches and 100 arm exercises done today:)
Sunday is all about getting ready for the week so after a quick stop at the grocery store, I hit the kitchen. I had bought a Thai mango salad at Costco and made it up for my lunches this week. I love how it has a bite to it.
I also had picked up beets so I combined them with the bright herb greens, some feta and Candied walnuts. I always love making all the ingredients as then I feel like I’m really cooking. This recipe was nice and simple, but I would suggest blotting the nuts on paper towel before using them.
I made peanut butter cookies. I had planned to make chocolate peanut butter bars, but forgot to buy icing sugar so instead made the cookies for this week’s treat. I bought Jiff peanut butter as the recipe had recommended a non-natural peanut butter. I really don’t know how people eat that stuff! I’m taking the rest to my friend at work who loves it.
I also got the Sally’s Baking Addiction Challenge.
The April Challenge was for soft dinner rolls but this recipe didn’t translate to gluten free, dairy free as well as the others have. The rolls taste good, but definitely resemble hamburger buns more than dinner rolls. It was still nice to make some bread as that’s something I always enjoy doing.
Still on the April Tank Top.
I ran over this afternoon to watch my nephew play an exhibition lacrosse game as he was playing across the street from me. I always love seeing him, but was slightly uncomfortable as he was playing my previous students so I knew a lot of the families I had to walk by to join my brother and sister in law. Nobody was rude, you just know that feeling when everyone is teasing you as you walk by.
I finished Definitely Not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos today. The story is of Chloe who is a divorced mother of one whose life is spiraling downward so she decides to enter a reality tv show in London. It’s not quite the reality show she is expecting as it’s actually a dating show.
I realized about halfway through exactly what was going to happen which is always somewhat disappointing. I also found the premise so unrealistic as to be hard to get into the story. However, I sure wouldn’t mind meeting a man like Henry Wrightman.🤣
Well that’s it for me today.
